Chocolate, Hazelnuts and Orange Biscuits

Chocolate, Hazelnuts and Orange Biscuits

Hi friends, I just finished baking these biscuits as in the last few mornings my husband has been spreading Nutella on top of each slice of orange cake, so I thought it could have been a good treat for him to have chocolate and orange biscuits for tomorrow’s breakfast!

Their consistency makes them perfect to be dipped in cold or hot milk for breakfast and I really hope you’ll enjoy the additional crunchiness given by the hazelnuts!… And if you like them to have a stronger orange flavour you can substitute part of the milk with the same amount of freshly squeezed orange juice.

SERVES: 30 biscuits

KITCHEN TO TABLE: 10min + 15min in the oven

DIFFICULTY: 1 hat-01


  • 300gr plain white flour
  • 100gr white sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 40gr cocoa powder
  • 100gr hazelnuts
  • 100gr cooking chocolate (I used the 51% cocoa one from Lindt)
  • Zests of 1 orange
  • 200ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 30gr sunflower oil
  • 30gr olive oil
  • Powdered sugar (optional)


  • Big Bowl
  • Baking tray
  • Greaseproof paper
  • Biscuits cutter
  • Rolling pin


  1. Preheat your oven at 170° (fan mode)
  2. Mix all your dry ingredients (also the hazelnuts and the chocolate roughly chopped), than add the liquid ones and you’ll obtain a dought that will have the same consistency as the one for short-crust pastry
  3. By means of a rolling pin flatten your dough until it’s 5 mm high, then cut your biscuits out of it with the cutter
  4. Place your biscuits on the baking tray previously lined with greaseproof paper and let them cook for 15 minutes or until a toothpick will come out clean when inserted in one of them
  5. Let them cool on a rack and enjoy them cold (I sprinkled some powdered sugar on them as the “made with love” stamp that I used was barely visible and I wanted them to look pretty!)
